Vaping has only grown in popularity in the last few years, meaning many people are only just now starting to explore the many vape products on the market. While plenty of information is available online to help people vape confidently, that doesn’t mean new vapers won’t make mistakes. However, you might be able to avoid some of the following vaping mistakes once you become aware of them.
Giving Up Immediately
Many people transitioning from smoking to vaping want something to mimic the smoking experience. If you don’t enjoy your first vaping session because you haven’t experienced that smoking-like sensation, you might give up and return to smoking.
However, enjoying vaping is all about experimentation. Try the best Elf Bar flavors rather than a random flavor you know nothing about, and research the best vape pens and accessories until you find something you like. You might not immediately enjoy vaping with the first products you buy, but that doesn’t mean you won’t after exploring other options.
Not Shopping With a Trusted Business
There are thousands of vape businesses across the United States, but not all will be trustworthy. New vapers haven’t had a chance to develop a relationship with a trusted vape supplier, but there are ways to improve your chances of shopping with a business that earns your trust immediately.
Explore directories, read online reviews, and ask friends and family members for recommendations. You can even explore business websites and social media, looking for testimonials from satisfied customers.
Buying the Cheapest Vape Products
Vaping is already a far more affordable option than smoking, especially in countries like Australia and New Zealand, where a 20-pack can cost upwards of $24. As a result, you may be tempted to buy the most inexpensive vape products to save money. While there is nothing wrong with bargain hunting, you might not end up with products that allow for a satisfying vaping experience. For example, the most affordable disposable vapes offer a 300-puff limit, while more expensive options can offer up to 5,000 puffs.
Vaping In Prohibited Areas
Vaping is not the same as smoking, so you might assume you can vape anywhere. However, that’s not always the case. While some states have no vaping laws, others have put the same restrictions on vape products as they have on smoking.
As a result, you might not be able to vape in enclosed workplaces, bars, restaurants, and private clubs. You might also be unable to vape in city-owned vehicles, educational facilities, and personal vehicles with children. Before you start vaping, brush up on laws and rules in your area. If you’re unsure, follow the same rules as you would if you were smoking cigarettes.
Not Choosing Your E-Liquids Carefully
Flavor isn’t the only difference between all e-liquids on the market. They also have different nicotine content. If you’re new to vaping, you might not realize that your vaping experience can depend on the strength of your chosen vaping juice. Low-strength e-liquid is typically recommended for people who are light smokers, while high-strength e-liquid often suits heavy and chain smokers.
You won’t be an experienced vaper immediately, but you can be with time. Now that you know some of the most common vaping mistakes, you might be in a strong position to avoid them and start your new vaping journey on the right foot.
